    I may need either a psychiatrist or a financial counselor over my compulsion to buy Barraud artifacts. I did not intend to buy this one since I already had two nice Barraud marine chronometers but it looked so nice and seemed so cheap when I forgot the buyer's premium in the heat of bidding. It is very nice and I will hopefully be better soon. (I am also playing with gallery insertion into posts.)

    I can't help you with the psychiatric option since I suffer from the same compulsion ... but I'm willing to offer my services on the financial side as I manage to resist that compulsion! In the UK the Barraud name is commanding big bucks (or more correctly "pounds" :eek:

    Hi River rat,

    No, that's the up-down indicator, it is very unusual to see one in that form. 8-day instruments are unusual as well.

    Regards,

    Graham
